There are have been many reddit posts regarding how loud the chipset fan is at load. X570 Chipset Fan Noise Comparison - Who makes the quietest X570 motherboards? The BIOS now correctly reports the proper rpm. As small fans can have pretty high pitch noise. [–]Foritain-Techtesters[S] 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (4 children). I am more worried by fan noise, hornestly. Cyrix showed that it was possible to make a compatible CPU without infringing on patents and won a lawsuit Intel had filed against it that had claimed otherwise. [–]yellowpasta_mech 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (1 child). Mind you, I dont think the GPC is a bad board at all, I've got it here and it looks great and the VRMs dont heat up at all. Yeah I know about VIA, I didn't mention them because they haven't really done much for a long time. X570 Chipset Temperatures and Fan Noise. Most people in the open source community, myself included, are vehemently against software patents and think they just destroy innovation and cause rent-seeking behavior. i9-9900K + RTX 3090 FE | R5 3600 + RTX 3070, AMD | 3900X | X570 Gigabyte AORUS Master | GTX 2080, 1050p60,9600GT,Win10,Pentium G4400,4GB DDR3, FX-4350, Geforce 9600GSO + Geforce GTX 10603gb, Ryzen 3700X ¦ RTX 2070S ¦Asrock x570 Taichi, Ryzen 9 3900x, 32GB 3600c14, RX Vega 56 @ 1650/975, 3900X/Master/RX VEGA 56 PULSE (Hynix HBM @945), AMD Ryzen 7 3700X | MSI X570 GPC | EVGA RTX 2070 Super XC Ultra, 3900x | MSI X570 Ace | 2x16GB 3600 CL15 B-Die, B450, R7 2700X, Vega 56, 32gb 3200mhz, NVMe, AMD|3900x|32 GB 4000 MHz CL19|Titan RTX|x570 Gigabyte Aorus I, i7 7700k | Crossfire Vega 64 | RTX 2080ti, R7 3700X | ASRock Phantom Gaming 4 | RTX 2070, AMD 3900X | Asus Crosshair VIII Formula | 2080Ti Hybrid, R5 1600 + V64 Nitro+ | Envy x360 13'' 4700U, AyyMD HYPETRAIN OPERATOR ~ 3950X|X570|5700XT.

If you believe your post should be an exception to the rules, please message the moderators before posting it. Competition from AMD and Intel killed Cyrix, got Transmeta to give up and put VIA into a comatose state. However i don't know if that changes if I were to hang 2 PCI-E 4.0 SSDs off that chipset. This is a big help! Totally true, but charging almost 700$ for a mobo (besides all the fancy features) with passive cooling it's crazy. [–]ltron2 7 points8 points9 points 1 year ago (2 children). In my personal opinion, the best way to win such a case in the modern age is to make it public; use social media to create public outcry against monopolistic business practices, and use that to make the court case as public and visible as possible.

Saying it's a "matter of time" is vague since it could also just be like 30 years. The advantages of the hybrid approach in modern CPUs is backwards compatibility and some strong guarantees the CPU can rely on when executing micro ops that were generated from a single macro op.

If you're not overclocking, and you dont need a ton of USB or M.2 slots, most boards will be fine actually. It might start a trend where at least the source code of projects would be opened up, and then distros could have binaries for different architectures in their repositories. I don't know why but there are a ton of people posting on here that put their only NVMe drive on the absolutely furthest slot from the CPU, guaranteeing it uses chipset lanes, adds latency to the drive, and heats up the chipset unnecessarily by driving so much activity through it. Of course that's a sample specific thing if anything, but in general not a main concern. 120 mm noctua fan has a max dB of 22.6 dB, Bequiet 120 mm fan has a max dB of 16.4 dB, [–]pbkoden 20 points21 points22 points 1 year ago (11 children). Know a solution? Stu999. Uh, there are more GPU AIBs than there are motherboard manufacturers. Again, most people in power just don't know anything about tech, so we have to suffer with their incompetence. The chipsets are in an incredibly difficult spot on the motherboard. This is just one reddit thread I have linked here. See any chipset fan on those gigantic beasts? Altho most of us are very satisfied, more information is a powerful tool to a perfectly happy consumer. And even when it does, you would only know when you look at it. Hi, would love to get some feedback on the build, I finished the pc part picker list. Reason why this would be interesting: If you are concerned about 1) the noise generated from the chipset fan and/or 2) the longevity of the chipset fan (afterall, a dead fan might lead to a dead motherboard), you would want to have the fan spin as little as possible for as much time as possible (with the optimal scenario being that it never spins - even under load). Their bios implementations have always been wacky and … I have the x570 Master. Let's start over: you can completely ignore any claims, comparisons or measurements provided by the manufacturer. Rule 1: Tech Support - Tech Support posts are only allowed in the quarterly tech support megathread - you can find the latest linked in the sidebar or pinned on the front page. [–]Foritain-Techtesters[S] 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago (6 children). Use so much power and add noise. I would prefer a proper beefy heatsink if needed. I have the latest bios on the board. GB is not my favorite brand but they are in my top 3. Motherboard manufacturers similarly depend on AMD and Intel chipsets these days. RISC designs also get extra instruction sets added to them, like SIMD stuff, etc. Content that is primarily about a competitor or industry that merely references AMD or AMD products would not meet this criteria. Around Same temps on cpu in game as well. I mean, explaining the details is really complicated. [–]Jyiiga 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago (5 children).

New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. © 2020 reddit inc. All rights reserved. Basically the traditional definitions don't make much sense anymore, so I extrapolated based on what I thought the commenter meant, when I responded. I do like MSI bios more than GB bios, but not enough more to justify not taking the generally better hw on GB boards this gen. I would peek at the Aorus Elite though. Watch the video you'll get noise. I thought the auto fan-off feature was standard across the board[s] (pun intended). I picked up an X470 C7H just in case, and it looks like i'll be returning that.My case fans are Noctua running 535rpm, cpu sits at mostly 600rpm-1000rpm (gaming load - noctua NH-D15). I am happy with it now, all back to quiet. ~1500rpm never really getting above 70c. Thaaaaaanks, Well if you passively cool your CPU that'll be quieter ;). Gigabyte flaunts its fleet of X570 motherboards, including the passively cooled Aorus X570 Xtreme :OCheck out our sponsors. for us PC users it's going to take a while to convince us maybe X86 will remain to be the advanced user platform. It's essentially CISC instruction --> CISC decoder --> several proprietary micro instructions --> RISC decoder, [–]BlackDE 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (1 child). I am disappointed tbh, the old Asus Sabertooth series like P67, Z77, Z97 has fans and they use industrial standard size. Silent, Balanced and Performance modes, choose the mode that suits you the best in any situation. None use a 'standard' retail fan. It is a rather tenuous path to take. what about the temperature when the fan is off? [–]getvexd 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (9 children). We did run the GPU on that board as well (had to have a GPU anyway). Decibels can only mean so much...when pitch and tone matter a whole lot under load. Even on Silent, it's the loudest part of my system. all that. Where is that option? The tiny yet mighty chipset fan. But still arm can outperform x86 with efficiency you can cram 4 apple a12 that require a little bit of cooling and the performance will be waaaay better but still software is the big problem so yeah X86 for advanced users. I run an extremely silent PC and am bothered by most noises, so I was naturally hesitant when I saw the chipset fans on the new line of motherboards. [–]azeiaRyzen 9 3950X | Radeon RX 560 4GB 12 points13 points14 points 1 year ago (0 children). The chipset fan isn't needed for shit, you can cool 15w passively with very little effort, this is purely a case of manufacturers cheaping out because a shit little laptop fan and aluminium heatspreader is cheaper/easier than a proper copper heatsink. Arguably all CPUs are hitting limits now, due to the end of Moore's law, which I think is a much bigger problem than the limitations of x86 (which mostly have to do with power inefficiency due to the decoder). AM4 is all about longevity and these 10 cent fans are just begging to fail and end up bricking the board(or at least severely limiting your features), Its all about the margins though I suppose. Before I updated the bios it had a long (sometimes indefinite) POST. I hadn't thought about it until you pointed out that the bytecode format changes.

[–]Cacodemon85 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (3 children), I hope that with the next mobo iteration (X670) , AMD find a way to get rid of an active cooling solution for the chipset. Cause then chipset really starts to heat up. I've had the 1.6 UEFI since release day. I've never seen her channel before. Has a little bit of a chunky sound compared to the stock fan which was more high pitched, but I prefer the Noctua and can rarely hear it even with my case right on my desk. How was your experience with installing and whatnot? It should be just fine for anything released on AM4. I don’t like the x570 boards having the tiny cooling fan on the chipset. Considering the minor differences in temps when stressing them, the chances of 2 SSDs in a normal use case causing more heat are slim Id say.

I can confirm that my chipset fan only spins on boot-up, and then shuts off per my custom curve. [–]Spain_strong 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago (0 children). [–]venzoja 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (0 children), [–]ckmanux 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (0 children). AMD is taking their time putting out AGRSA updates. But which board has the best passive cooling? But in all seriousness, the chance of you hearing this are slim unless you get a case with terrible airflow making the fan spin up. If such a thing were implemented and adopted, people could easily switch between aarch64, arm64, ppc64, etcetera depending on whatever ISA gives the best performance when they are buying hardware. 2018: Dec | Nov | Oct | Sep | Aug | Jul | Jun | May | Apr | Mar | Feb | Jan Personally I'd take the Aorus Pro I guess, but honestly you get to a point where you can let looks decide. I updated to the latest version of the bios and it seems to be fixed. [–]pbkoden 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (0 children). At 50 CM you'll roughly be able to take about 6 dB off those numbers. The problem is basically that by the time the old patents expire, the software ecosystem is already dependent on a set of new patented instruction sets, so it's a constant vicious cycle of vendor lock-in. Took off the cover of the fan, there are 3 screw holding it in place.

I remember a huge EVGA HEDT mobo that had a couple of them. I'm not sure how many foundries today actually have such a license. I woulden worry about fan failure unless you have the board for like 8 years or more. If so how customizable is it? Temps never seem to get to above mid-high 50s c on the chipset, and the danger zone for those is 90-100 c I believe. I've got an Asrock X570 Steel Legend and I don't hear the fan on it at all, but it's in a Fractal Design R4 and I'm not using anything that would make the chipset get hot. When I spoke to ASRock they did mention a new bios but specifically did not mention a passive fan mode :-/. Dude try reading, the CH8 (which is what you mention you bought in another post) has x570 fan chipset is nothing like OP x570 chipset which he has issue with.

For all intents and purposes therefore, when people use CISC in the context of x86, it's usually better to narrow the scope to what is really different between it and other designs, and it's honestly mostly legacy things that're there for backwards-compatibility.

I would prefer a proper beefy heatsink if needed. photoshop, after effects, ableton 10, as well as gaming. It's an uphill battle. There is a reason -every- brand is doing fan stop on their GPUs, i bet their fan-based RMA rates have crashed down. Before the BIOS that had that setting, the fan noise was driving me insane. Do you have any idea? And it was actually regarded quite highly? Asus might have the slightly better VRM at that pricepoint, but the differences don't matter unless you xOC a 3950X and the lack of a 2nd internal USB header and an internal Type-C header on most asus boards is a no-no for me in most modern cases.

As is pretty typical when you find issues to complain about, I poked GB and they sent a beta bios that same day. This does work on my ASUS prime x570-p to control the PCH fan #5 and enabled me to isolate that the mobo fan adds basically no extra noise to my system. But as she said as well, she/we are up for expanding this if there is a clear larger interest in the content. [–]Cacodemon85 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (0 children). Can you confirm that you can apply offset CPU voltage on the X570 Taichi? I was worried that my mobo will be the jet in otherwise totally quiet passive cooled HPC! But it's a good question. I said "no" to basically the whole post. Press J to jump to the feed. I will likely end up with the elite and will likely save 100 dollars or so too!

RTX are way overpriced and don't outperform it, 2080 is just faster by like 4-6 fps on average, which makes you wonder what you should get. Well the Pro / Master are two very solid options, the ITX is interesting because it's the only ITX ,and the Xtreme is .. well.. the only passive board. Rule 7: No shitposts or memes - Shitposts and memes are not allowed. So I'd probably conclude that in reality, the test people need won't be possible for another year or two, at which point hopefully we have some proper high-end gen4 GPUs and SSDs that really push the chipset to the limit. Let's talk about x570 chipset fans... Hi, this is something that has been bugging me for a while... Late last year I brought an x570-P along with a 3950X late last year, and the machine is great, you can throw loads at it and it doesn't really slow down (I'm a software developer). But the objection is on point. Zero compatibility issues, good fan profiles, great feature set, and I'm pretty sure gigabyte has had the AB bios update for a few weeks now so they've been really on top of bios updates so far. I just wanted to say great video. I’m not sure if it’s a bad thing but it’s definitely bigger than my board. [–]Lulumurr1 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (0 children), Well, I'm still not sure. Agreed. Without audio or video of the actual fan noise, this video doesnt help me at all. Posts with altered titles will be removed. LIkewise if you looked around the people having noise problems on motherboards tend to have issues with fan location and type of card. I dont see a reason for idle to be active cooling. I do not think anybody has tested it yet. For what it's worth I am using a PCIe 4.0 NVMe that has my Windows install on it. Short Version: It isn't enough to matter between the various motherboards.

LLVM supports every bytecode version from 3.0 onward: Can't hear that little fan over all my other fans in the rig anyway. Nope, since i have the X570 no other fan sounds loud as its fan. Just a bit low in fan headers (4 iirc, can doublecheck), but other than that pretty well rounded. Yea. Patent licensing might not be an issue. Like shit, there's passive coolers out there for 65w CPUs. But the Elite offers a better VRM and a ton more headers (incl type-c for your case), so a well rounded package for about ~25$ more (region dependant). ps3,360 then port to pc. Fair point with them not investing more on their designs but I just wanted to point out that TDP is not truly indicative of the amount of heat it generates. I set it to silents, but now i sound like and old dying HDD. With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to fuel AMD's latest CPUs, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count AMD battle rig.

Sure, its completely fine. But are you asking for chipset temps on those same states? does it ramp up fan speed during load like gaming? 3rd: A decent case has nothing to do with it. Ooooo I’ll have to do these when I’m home. The current X470 chipset is still well in the running with a whopping 8 watts in the maximum, but for the X570 chipset this power consumption increases significantly for some of it. ok which one have easy replacable fan? Once updated to the BIOS revision that gives PCH fan control, setting it to silent yielded the following: 0RPM until 60c. I don't want to hear my pc at all. Most startups would not want their early days of business to be marred in legal troubles, so in practice we're not likely to see any competitors in the x86 arena anytime soon.
